At Edquity, we believe in addressing economic injustices by using higher education as a means to narrow equity gaps, accumulate wealth, and facilitate social mobility. No student should have to pause or terminate her, his, or their educational aspirations because of a financial or basic needs emergency. Join us and our postsecondary partners in increasing access to emergency resources and funding. Together, we can create a future where students get the help they need, when they need it.
